The fountain in Princes Street Gardens

The fountain in Princes Street Gardens

Grove Street is near to Haymarket (one of Edinburgh's mainline railway stations and tram stops) and the West End. This area has an array of small independent shops, and Princes Street, the New Town and the Old Town are all just a short walk away. It’s a short and pleasant walk to the Royal Mile and the Castle via Lothian Road and Johnston Terrace.

Grove street is only a few minutes' walk away from the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). It's also a great location to enjoy the city's cultural life: you are within walking distance of the King’s Theatre, Cameo CinemaFilmhouse (home of the Edinburgh International Film Festival), Lyceum Theatre, Usher Hall and Traverse Theatre.  Many of these venues serve the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe.

At the end of Grove Street across Fountainbridge is the Union Canal, perfect for a waterside walk; you can go all the way to Glasgow if you want, but you might prefer the more convenient distractions of the bars and cafes in the canal basin at Edinburgh Quay.

At the other end of Grove Street is Haymarket and the West End, the western fringe of the New Town, and only a few minutes’ walk from Princes Street and George Street, with their shops and eating and drinking places. The New Town was laid out in the early eighteenth century and encompasses the geometric streets between Great King Street to the north and Princes Street to the south and Broughton Street to the east and Charlotte Square to the west; it is a complete contrast to the medieval irregularity of the Old Town. The New Town is mainly residential but there are lots of independent shops, galleries, bars and restaurants to discover, especially around Dundas Street, Thistle Street and Broughton Street. Charming William Street is well known for its specialist shops and popular pubs. You can walk to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which houses the outstanding national collection of modern and contemporary art, from the beginning of the twentieth century and post-war, including Matisse, Picasso, Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Lucian Freud, Antony Gormley, Gilbert & George, Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. The other National Galleries are also in the city centre; these galleries are the Scottish National Gallery, which holds the national collection of fine art from the early Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century, including masterpieces from Raphael, El Greco, Velázquez, Rubens, Van Gogh, Monet, Cézanne, Degas and Gauguin, and the National Portrait Gallery, which tells the story of Scotland and her people through a wealth of imagery including portraits of famous historical figures such as Mary, Queen of Scots, Prince Charles Edward Stuart and Robert Burns, through to more recent pioneers in science, sport and the arts.

Princes Street has mostly high-street brand names, whereas George Street and Multrees Walk (across St Andrew Square from George Street) offer a more upmarket retail experience. St John’s churchyard, at the junction of Lothian Road and Princes Street, is home to the annual Festival West End Craft, Art and Design Fair.

The apartment is a 5-10-minute walk from the railway station Haymarket and tram stop Haymarket (or the tram stop "West End / Princes Street"). The trams run directly from/to Edinburgh Airport. We will send you detailed directions before your arrival.

  • “This was a phenomenal place to stay, way better than the pictures show. There were 4 of us who stayed and we could not have asked for a better place. We were close to a train station and many taxis were around the corner, but we were able to walk everywhere we needed ... I'd highly suggest staying here as we look to do it again in the future.”
